stylesheet with several <pre> styles?

How do I set several different properties for PRE in
a CSS stylesheet, rather than resorting to this:

<BODY>

<PRE STYLE="font-family:monospac e;
font-size:0.95em;
width:40%;
border:red 2px solid;
color:red;
background-color:#FBB; ">
This is red
</PRE>

<PRE STYLE="font-family:monospac e;
font-size:0.95em;
width: 40%;
border:blue 2px solid;
color:blue;
background-color:#BBF; ">
This is blue
</PRE>

<PRE STYLE="font-family:monospac e;
font-size:0.95em;
width: 40%;
border:green 2px solid;
color:green;
background-color:#BFB; ">
This is green
</PRE>

</BODY>

(the above is just an example)

Would this do?

In CSS:
..pre1 {font-family:monospac e;
font-size:0.95em;
width:40%;
border:red 2px solid;
color:red;
background-color:#FBB;}

And so on.

In Body
<pre class="pre1">Th is is red</pre>

Specifying monospace is superfluous as it's the default for <pre>,
specifying 0.95em may also be pointless.

pre.special{wid th:40%}
pre.special.one {border:2px solid red;color:red;b ackground:blue}
pre.special.two {border:2px solid green;color:gre en;background:r ed}
pre.special.thr ee{border:2px solid blue;color:blue ;background:gre en}

Replace the "special, one, two, three" class names with something
meaningful.

<pre class="special one">foobar</pre>
<pre class="special two">foobar</pre>
<pre class="special three">foobar</pre>

Several ways, the easiest is if there are no other
<PRE> sections..

<head>
....
<style type='text/css'>
pre {
// this is a default for <PRE> sections AFAIU, redundant..
// font-family:monospac e;
font-size:0.95em;
width:40%;
// AFAIR, you can override *just* the color, see below..
border:black 2px solid;
}
</style>
</head>
<BODY>
<PRE STYLE="border-color:red; color:red;
background-color:#FBB; ">
This is red
</PRE>
etc..

[ ..And why are you presuming you can manually space
text so that it fits 40% of the width of the page?
(If that is what the spaces are for) ]
(the above is just an example)


...hmmm. I always get suspicious when people pose
arbitrary examples that they think demonstrate the
problem/challenge they face. An *actual* page with
a 'real World(WideWeb)' example is generally better.

For further information see..
<http://www.spartanicus .utvinternet.ie/help_us_help_yo u.htm>
...or my own variant more geared to Java/Javascript

pre.special{wid th:40%}
pre.special.one {border:2px solid red;color:red;b ackground:blue}
pre.special.two {border:2px solid green;color:gre en;background:r ed}
pre.special.thr ee{border:2px solid blue;color:blue ;background:gre en}

Replace the "special, one, two, three" class names with something
meaningful.

<pre class="special one">foobar</pre>
<pre class="special two">foobar</pre>
<pre class="special three">foobar</pre>


should be:

pre.special{wid th:40%}
pre.one{border: 2px solid red;color:red;b ackground:blue}
pre.two{border: 2px solid green;color:gre en;background:r ed}
pre.three{borde r:2px solid blue;color:blue ;background:gre en}

IMHO.

There's no "should" about it, either method can be used.

I've marked up song lyrics with the <pre> tag because it seems the most appropriate type of markup for the type of data.
